[Feature Review] Introducing Screen Recorder Toggle Button in Notification Panel: Now Record with Ease

Hi Mi Fans,
When it comes to the implementation of features, no matter the feature is big or small, MIUI is simply the best at it. Useful but simple features like Quick ball, 3 finger sliding screenshot, built-in app lock, etc are the prime examples of the above statement. This is one of the key reasons why MIUI is considered as the best customized Android ROM ever. MIUI 10, the latest iteration is also following the path of its predecessors, which comes with a lot of cool enhancements and features.

With the introduction of MIUI 10, we witnessed a major revamp in the Notification shade. New redesigned toggles layout brought an Android Pie like design and it gives a more stock-ish feel now. Not just the toggles panel, currently the buttons are also undergoing a revamp. Adding to that, a new toggle button of Screen Recorder, one of the most loved apps in MIUI, has now been a part of the toggles panel. With the help of this button, users are able to capture their screens right from the notification shade itself. Pretty amazing, isn't it? Come let's explore more about it.

Steps to add the toggle button to Notification Panel
  • Open Notification Shade and Swipe down from Toggles Panel to expand -- Swipe Left (you can skip this step if "More" toggle button is present there)

  • Tap on More button -- Drag Screen Recorder button and drop it to the brighter area of the Toggles panel at top

  • Click Done to continue -- That's it, Screen Recorder button has been successfully added to the Toggles panel!

How the Screen Recorder toggle button works?
  • Open Notification Shade and tap on the Screen Recorder button -- Nothing else you need to do, Screen Recorder app already started to capture your screen!

Please note:
Screen Recorder toggle button is only available in MIUI Global Beta version 8.8.16 and above. This feature is still under testing, therefore it may not work as expected. Once the feature becomes stable enough for normal use, it will be rolled out to MIUI Global Stable users via an OTA update.

Want to try this feature before its arrival on Stable ROM?
Switching to MIUI Global Beta ROM from Global Stable ROM is easier than ever before! It doesn't involve unlocking the bootloader or fastbooting, now you can switch to Beta right from your phone's Updater app. For more information and list of supported devices, refer the following thread.
